in state education funding. education is another example of how in tennessee we're distinguishing ourselves as different from the rest of the country. some have said that this administration and general assembly aren't committed to public education, but that could not be further from the truth. we are literally putting our money where our mouth is, even when other states haven't done so through tough budget times. this administration is absolutely committed to public education and understands that the large majority of our students attend public schools and always will. that's why we've fully funded the basic education program the past two years and are doing so again this year. that's why tonight i'm announcing that we will invest $51 million to assist locals in paying for technology transition upgrades in schools across the state a substantial and strategic investment in our schools.

. akerman received her doctorate from the harvard school of education, and was one of the greatest successes as the first graduate to actually become the superintendent of a major urban school district. she was superintendent in three major districts washington, d.c., san francisco and philadelphia, as well as having been a teacher, principal and administrator in missouri, and chief academic advisor in seattle. and also held two masters degrees in education and one from harvard and washington university from st. louis as well as teacher's college. in july of 2000, she became the first permanent female and the first african american superintendent until 2007. she came to us during an unsettled time in history and spent years cleaning up our financial weaknesses uncovering problems with our systems and strengthens our administrative infrastructure. i have a photo in my office of her and then general counsel that i refer to as the $53 million photo. it was taken right after we found out that we would be receiving a $53 in restitution and rewards related to our building systems lawsuit settlemen

[applause] every dollar we invest in high quality childhood education can save seven dollars later on by boosting regulation rates, reducing teen pregnancy, reducing violent crime. in states that make it a priority to educate our youngest children, like georgia or oklahoma, studies show students grow up more likely to read and do math at grade level, graduate high school, hold a job, form more stable families of their own. we know this works thomas a let's do what works and make sure none of our children. let's give that chance to our kids.

cuts would jeopardize our military readiness. they devastate priorities like education and energy and medical research. they would certainly slow our recovery, and cost us hundreds of thousands of jobs. that's why democrats republicans, business leaders and economists have already said that these cuts, known here in washington as the sequester are a really bad idea. now, some in congress have proposed preventing only the defense cuts by making bigger cuts to things like education and job training, medicare, and social security benefits. that idea is even worse. [ applause ] >> yes the biggest driver of our long-term debt is the rising cost of health care for an aging population. those of us who care about programs like medicare must embrace the need for modest reforms. otherwise, our retirement programs will crowd out the investments we need for our children and compromise a secure retirement for future generations. we can't ask senior citizens and working families to shoulder the entire burden of deficit reduction while asking nothing more from the wealth yeast and most powerful.
educational history over the past 50 years, 60 years now, has been the bankrupt decision. this idea that if we could desegregate and force the hand of schools and policymakers, we could have a more diverse school, a greater educational not just equality but equity. obviously your book pushes back against that narrative somewhat. at least people in louisville do. but the brown vs. the board is in the background of the book the entire time. what has brown meant to educational equality and access in the country. >> it's hard question. we hold up brown as this amazing feat, they we rolled back segregation and then we look back at what happened afterwards and see how incredibly difficult it was, divisive in some ways and also you had this very incremental progress after that. it was frustrating to people, and so it is seen as a great victory but i think also it's important -- looking back and seeing what we didn't accomplish yet. and so when i was looking at desegregation and how it was finally implemented 20 years later after brown was handed down, 20 years later you start busing. then the way the

.s. attorney, representatives from the department of education confirm if we don't do anything about it, 13 million kids will become victims again for another year. some 3 million kids across the country will decide it is better to leave their school grounds than to continue their education. there will be more stupblting of the emotional and educational growth of our kids. all across the bay, whether working here in san francisco or alameda or sonoma or santa clara county. i want to thank you law enforcement officials here, instructors, community advocates, people who are concerned about our kids, they are our future and i would love to see a new generation of kids who don't know what bully is, who are not victims, who don't have those scars. but we've got to do today is sharing in the best practices, to be encouraged by programs like our roof top school here in san francisco who has traded a 50-person ambassador class that will talk about this, that will invite other kids, school administrators who have received the support of our school site administrators to encourage them to get this
of us, you have it khaifrpb the social norms. we must educate. but we must go beyond thinking more rigor will get us better achievement. we have to remember a school is a community and in a xhuept, people look out for each other. they've got each other's back. how do we begin to promote that idea that we are in this thing together? we believe it's through, unfortunately but truly, self-interest. kids are driven developmentally by the desire to fit in, to belong, to be part of an affinity group. if we can capitalize on their desire to look out for their friends and give them some more tools and opportunities and support, they will begin to do what we need them to do to at least confront it in their own small cell of social influence and the compounding and leveraging of that begins to make change. so the question we have to ask ourselves, are we as adults willing it slow down enough to invite kids to sit down at the table with us and partner? do we have the courage to understand that inclusion takes time and we have have to work more diligently to i invite young people, particul
is giving people the skills and the education, which they need to do the kinds of jobs we're going to have in the future, which will require more skills than many of the ones we've had in the past. that's why i think you need to start early on. this country pioneered secondary education, pioneered college education. it's falling back behind other countries in preschool. and i think that's the kind of new frontier. particularly if you look at the sort of gap between the 1% and the rest, the gap between the top and the bottom. the minimum wage can help, if done responsibly. much more important is to invest in people at the bottom. that's why universal preschool really helps. >> there's k through 12 in this country. we think there should be crawl through 12. other country that is do this have very high taxes. we're not in the situation where people want to pay for something new at the moment. don't move. coming up, our bubbles -- yes, bubbles. the key to this slow and steady recovery, are the feigns here to stay or are you at risk of the next bubble bursting? like an available heads-up displa
